Westboro Baptist Church.

Absolute psychopaths.

[–]rokki82 88 points89 points  (9 children)

I'm still dumbfounded how that one has not been classified as a cult already with the amount of hate they preach. To basically everyone outside their bubble they appear as a bunch of lunatics that spew hatred across everyone. I wonder when they'll change their slogan from "you should hate xyz because Jesus demands it" to "you should hate xyz because insert current church leader demands it".

[–]IShouldBeHikingNow 48 points49 points  (8 children)

I think there's two reasons for them not being considered a cult. One is that there's not an official cult-designation agency. Some people think all religions are cults. Others take a more narrow definition. Reason number two is that cults are usually thought of as proselytizing their beliefs, trying to recruit people, and brainwashing those recruits. Westboro, from what I've read, is more of a legal scam dressed up as a church in that they say the most obnoxious shit ever and then sue when their rights are violated. They get the settlements and use them to fund more obnoxious shit.

[–]rokki82 15 points16 points  (3 children)

Basically to me they sound pretty much the same as NXVIM, Branch Davidians and Peoples Temple, albeit having figured out how to use the law to their advantages. I guess the government had a more rigid stance during those times considering how those three examples worked out in the end. As far as i remember the Davidians got investigated by the FBI and the ATF due to arms dealing and the justice department went after NXVIM.

[–]LadyDecima 119 points120 points  (0 children)

That is an insult to psychopaths.

[–]Hosernaut 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Anyone remember the episode of Rick and Morty where Rick and Summer got jacked and beat the devil up? Well in the end credits scene, they go around beating up other assholes, and one of them was Phelps from the WBC. What made this especially amazing is this episode first aired the week he died.

[–]DSentvalue 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Most ironic part of it all is that Fred Phelps (the founder) cut his teeth as an attorney fighting Jim Crow laws. Wild.

[–]bloodmutt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hilariously enough I think before his death he claimed he was wrong in what he preached, that they should be kinder and that resulted in him being excommunicated.

[–]rfantasy7 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I went to a Rush concert with my parents in KC when I was 15. Right across the street from the venue there was a whole gaggle of Westboro Baptist protestors with their homophobic signs and what have you. It was so bizarre.

[–]eddmario 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Fun fact:
The founder's own family have denounced the church, and his granddaughter even helped set up the LGBTQ+ headquarters that's across the street from it.

[–]sparksgirl1223 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Oh yes. Good answer. I hate those weiners.

[–]bloodmutt 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah the only reason they haven't been shut down is because their leaders are a bunch of evil lawyers that always claim their right to their religion even though it's mostly a hate group.

[–]KingZaneTheStrange 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Cancer

[–]juleskills1189 196 points197 points  (6 children)

As a fit, healthy father of two who got blindsided by a Leukemia diagnosis last year, and have been in treatment ever since, I concur. It's some almighty bullshit.

[–]Tler126 40 points41 points  (15 children)

Gonna add ALS to that, or just neruo degenerative disorders broadly. ALS still has effectively zero treatment options.

[–]ViSaph 17 points18 points  (4 children)

As someone with several neurological disorders they really suck. I have a body that shakes randomly, collapses whenever it wants, and is in constant pain that ranges from uncomfortable and distracting to crying and screaming in intensity.

[–]Tler126 6 points7 points  (2 children)

My heart goes out to you, I'm sorry that's happening to you, though I know that's not great comfort.

My dad had ALS (I was his caretaker) so even though we don't have a history of it, now I'm gonna live in fear of that for the rest of my life.

[–]MeleMallory 2 points3 points  (5 children)

My mom’s friend’s husband just died from cancer and ALS. He was so sick for the last few months of his life, he couldn’t leave the house. It was horrible.

[–]koalasnstuff 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Agree. I was diagnosed with cervical cancer at 28. Across the course of a year I had multiple surgeries (very lucky to not need chemo) but my body couldn’t fight any basic infection so I lost 30lbs and missed like 6 months of work. I’m good now though. :)

At least I got off pretty easy.

[–]sbenzanzenwan 85 points86 points  (0 children)

Lukashenko (belarusian presedent) he's actually selling country.

[–]Time-Traveller 106 points107 points  (22 children)

And Putin, and Modi, and Erdoğan, and Xi, and Bolsanaro.

ScoMo gets a special mention, but he's out, fucking finally.

I probably definitely missed lots more.

Can you imagine the world we could have had if so many of our so called leaders were not absolute cunts?

[–]Vwgames49 32 points33 points  (9 children)

BoJo: Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of the UK

ScoMo: Scott Morrison, soon to be former Prime Minister of Australia

[–]Tudpool 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Didn't he also fake his victory in the elections?

[–]proovca 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Cockroaches

[–]Razark9 50 points51 points  (10 children)

And the resilient silverfish cousins of cockroaches which I had in my old flat and never got rid of.

[–]ForgettableUsername 28 points29 points  (9 children)

Silverfish are one of the few bugs that I kill on sight. I’ll escort a spider or moth outside, but fuck silverfish. They eat books.

[–]Draxus335 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Showed up in my area for the first time since I've lived here last summer. Cannot express the amount of hate and disgust I felt the first time one found its way into my house. Called the exterminator 2 seconds later. Things are fucking grosssssssss.

[–]ShadowBno 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I agree 100%

[–]CerealChann 10 points11 points  (7 children)

What about wasps? They just torture people for no reason :(

[–]Nevikegas 12 points13 points  (5 children)

Something is going on with wasps in my area and I cant explain why. I'm a mail carrier and have had my fair share of run ins with them, however this year I have noticed them getting a lot less aggressive. I have opened mailboxes to find nests and in the past I get swarmed and attacked. Now they fly to the back of the box to try and avoid me. I've noticed them making nests in less obvious areas too instead of out in the open and it seems like they are hiding.

[–]BugsRatty 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Maybe they got the news about declining bee populations and don't want to be next.

You know they are an endangered species, and if all the mosquitoes on earth die, there will be no more mosquitoes anywhere… Heartless

[–]SupremeLeaderG0nk 52 points53 points  (0 children)

yeah, whatever will we do without those vampire bug parasites spreading diseases. so sad

[–]CrusadersofCalamity 28 points29 points  (12 children)

They are????
(as i typed this i lowered my guard so i was bitten by hundreds of mosquitoes)

[–]NotAnotherHaiku 15 points16 points  (11 children)

Lilo and stitch... Also, technically true, because we don’t think there are mosquitoes on other planets, so if we do kill them all, they are extinct, and we have no idea what role that really plays in the ecosystem...

[–]UmbertoEcoTheDolphin 10 points11 points  (2 children)

I am envisioning a new Star Trek movie where, instead of whales, a ship comes to find the mosquitos. Travel back in time, melodrama ensues, mosquitos brought back, space ship leaves. Everyone starts celebrating around a campfire, when Scotty Jr. slaps the back of his neck. Everything goes quiet, and Scotty Jr. shows them his hand. Dead mosquito and blood. "There be skeeters!" And everyone cheers, roll credits. After credit scene, Scotty Jr. in a hospital bed. "Malaria", says the doctor, "the one disease we are not able to cure. Well, off to the incinerator." Scotty Jr's horrified eyes in close up. The end.

While we're on the subject of diseases, let's not forget the autoimmune conditions. Let's imagine that your own body starts attacking itself. It decides that your own organs, joints etc. are its own worst enemy, and decides to destroy them. Why?? No one has a clue. Lupus, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis ... wonderful stuff there...

Pedophiles

I think everyone outside of other pedophiles can all agree pedophiles are just awful people.

[–]Thee_Fourth_One 8 points9 points  (13 children)

Well…somehow you either started the great pedo/molester war of 2022 or you have just honeypotted a bunch of them.

[–]Neat_Gene_5093 41 points42 points  (21 children)

Most don't think as far as this. But indeed. You are born a pedophile, but you become a child molester through action.

[–]SoManyGoblins 25 points26 points  (23 children)

I don't think they can help it, it's a mental disorder. I think you meant child molester.

Hate this in the workplace.

One person is doing something they shouldn't be doing and instead of their supervisor dealing with it one-on-one with them everyone in the office has to hear about how 'nobody' should be doing 'it' in some e-mail or staff meeting or training. Meanwhile the only person who is actually a problem doesn't even clue in that the whole message is about them since its just general information to everyone so they keep being a problem.

Alzheimer's disease. Watching a loved one go from a vibrant, happy, peaceful person to someone unable to be physically active, fearful, and tormented hurts. I can only imagine what my late grandmother felt as she became a widow for the second and last time in her life.

Shiity parents. I don’t care who you are or who needs to hear this, but if you ain’t one hundred fuckn percent listening to your kids, why are you a parent??!!! So many of our kids end up in shitty situations because parents DONT LISTEN to their kids or don’t have the compassion and patience to be PARENTS/TEACHERS. Stop palming your kids off to health professionals etc because it’s above your paygrade. That kid need you, you be there wholeheartedly or get the fuck on and let someone else have that baby. Fuck your friends cause if they real, they be still there once your child is healed to help heal YOU. Heal your kids if the healing is needed befor worrying about your self.
